hi dr david,
what could cause a pinched nerve?
no diabetes or history of nerve damage. My periods are irractic also could that play a part? My Gp said to wait a bit then go back if it doesn't settle... but its literally like torture as the tingling doesn't stop so i am going to have to go back.
Hi Dr david,
Yes i need to go back to my GP they thought it might be my meds but I've been on them so long and come off them id of noticed the symptoms if they where this bad before.. they said to go back if it persisted... its like torture i literally cant stop thinking about it and my mental health doesnt help.. my periods gone missing could hormones and that play any part?
no history of diabetes or nerve damage
im only 25? i have been very ill for 2 years and not been very active.. do you think sitting around in similar positions would contribute to that? i only move to go get drinks and get things from upstairs and dont leave the house.
severe major depression, its left me unable to do anything as its gotten worse, so i sit pretty much all day everyday. I take it wouldnt take much for the tingling to flair up if it where nerve related? could anxiety worsen that?
im just on lithium at the moment, i was going to try another med but the tingling has made it impossible.. It feels real and im so ill its impossible to tell.. usual if its in my head i can force myself into distraction or vallium will help but the tingling is so prominent I cant do that, so it leads me to believe its real.
Thanks Dr David
no just depression
but the tingling is more recent and more severe than anything else.. i will go back to my GP to see for further investigation to rule anything physical out.. its just obviously there all the time and so bad.. yes i did wonder if i where well this would be a minor irritation as appose to torture to a severely depressed person..
hi i replied to your previous message and left excellent service the money is gone from my balance, hopefully you received it,
thank you for you help Dr.David
